Pleasure of Place: Photographs by Richard Stringer explores over 40 years of image-making by photographer Richard Stringer. In the tradition of Australian documentary photographers Harold Cazneaux and Max Dupain, Stringer’s beautiful images capture the structure, light and detail of architecture, industrial archaeology and the Australian landscape. Coming to photography through his training and practice as an architect, he displays a proficiency for composition and lighting and an abiding interest in both the modern and historical built environment, particularly in Queensland. Through a selection of evocative images and perceptive artist portraits, Pleasure of Place explores the distinguished and influential career of a renowned Queensland photographer.

Featuring essays by QAGOMA curators Michael Hawker and Sally Foster, as well as technical commentary by the photographer himself, this catalogue is published in association with the exhibition ‘Pleasure of Place: Photographs by Richard Stringer’, Queensland Art Gallery, 26 October 2013 to 16 March 2014
